When you select the Specify Failover Hosts admission control policy, you must also designate which hosts are to be used for this function.

1

Open the Specify Failover Hosts dialog box from the vSphere HA screen of the Cluster Settings dialog box of the vSphere Client.

2

In the Available Hosts pane, select an available host to designate as a failover host.

3

Click the >> button to move the host name to the Failover Hosts pane.

4

Repeat steps 1 and 2 for each host you want to designate as a failover host.

5

To remove a host from the failover hosts list, select the name of that host in the Failover Hosts pane.

6

Click the << button to move the host name to the Available Hosts pane.

You can use the hosts designated as failover hosts to support the vSphere HA admission control process.
